    Default Minorities In Comics and Related Media

    Consider this the "All New" Minority Issues thread. This is the place to discuss issues regarding gender, ethnic, sexual, religious, and political issues in diversity as they relate to comics and media. All views are welcome, but remember what you say probably will be debated.

    John Boyega in Star Wars...

    Since Mace Windu got to use a purple light saber what color should Jedi Boyega use to slice dark lords of the Sith up with... Yellow... Plaid?

    I think J.J. Abrams made a great and bold choice with this casting and it will pay off handsomely!

    I had all but retired from the Star Wars franchise after Revenge of The Sith... This might pull me back in!

    Aw man, I wanted to start the new thread. I would have called it, "All new Minorities in Comics and Media #1 with 52 variant covers."

    2015 will make 2014 look like 2013. I truly get the sense that things are moving in a positive direction.

    Well, Sam Jackson requested a purple saber, so I guess whatever color Boyega wants?

    I guess I'll post what i posted in the old forum Star Wars thread here since it's more on topic here

    But just out of curiosity, what's the entirely-arbitrary number required to make the quota for being "enough?" And why aren't you in every single movie thread blasting those films for not meeting it (because I'm fairly sure virtually none of them do)
    I'm not going to blast them for it but I do feel that action movies have either the Smurfette thing going or the Modified Smurfette (as I call it) in having only 2 girls.
    Star Trek Into Darkness has 2 girls. Avengers 2 will have 2 girls. Both incarnations of the Young Avengers have only 2 girls at a time.

    JLA had Wonder Smurfette being the only girl, then JLE added in Power Girl. The JLI had Canary and female Dr Light for a while and then finally added in more women.

    It's just one those things. People realize that one woman isn't enough, so they add a second but that's usually it. Agents of Shield actually has a whopping 3 women and it's cool to see the variety of roles. One kicks ass, one is the brain and one is the wildcard. I think Star Trek Voyager might be the only Trek with 3 women in the main cast: Janeway, B'lanna and Kes/7of9. (TNG did the first season but the rest of the series was 2)

    And as mentioned earlier, they all usually have only one black person.

    Glad to see this thread back.

    And I seriously hope this Star Wars movie crosses John Boyega into the mainstream movie media. I really hope it does.

    I'm trying to recall where we left off in the last thread?

    were we talking about Star Wars or was it Boondocks?

    Oh well new thread yall.




    Also the new biracial Wally West made his debute today might be something to keep an eye for those following Flash comics
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Am I wrong in not wanting to save much from the old forum...this new one feels like a fresh start--and besides some digital art..and some excellent summaries...I don't have much I want to port over..

    Hey guys. (--incognito!--) here. Check this out:

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/30/us/new...-selects-yale/

    Enin scored 2250 out of a possible 2400 on his SAT, placing him in the 98th percentile across the country, according to The College Board. He's also ranked 11th in his class at William Floyd High School, a public school on Long Island, according to his principal, Barbara Butler.

    "I applied knowing that going to any of the Ivy League schools would be wonderful," Enin told CNN earlier this month. "I thought if I applied to all eight, I figured I'd get into one ... but from the first one onwards I said, 'This can't be happening!' I was shocked seeing all these acceptances under my name."


    This kid got accepted into EIGHT IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS. He's a legend!

    By the way, what the hell happened to the forums?

    Smurfette was created to be the butt of sexist jokes, not as an effort to be inclusive to women.
